Departmental honors is distinct from H&S Honors, and so students need not be affiliated with the H&S Honors Program in order to propose a senior honors thesis in English.  However, the English Department does maintain specific eligibility requirements.  Students who plan to pursue an honors thesis:

            1) Must be entering their final academic year of study prior to graduation;
            2) Must have completed eight of the twelve English courses that the curriculum
                       requires, and must receive a grade of “A-” or higher in four of these courses.
